Had read Ruark's Horn of the Hunter prior to my first trip to Africa in 2016...and read the original article by Ruark entitled "Suicide Made Easy".....Well, I'm still VERTICAL....and am returning for my second hunt in July....bringing my oldest son for his first hunt. We are answering the call of the horn! I have told him if he sees Africa he may never want to return home. In a perfect world, my retirement dream would be to drop me off on one oceanside in Africa and pick me up on the other when I'm done hunting across the continent...or spread my ashes across the birthplace of mankind. I've never felt so 'at home' and immediately comfortable in any place in my life as being in Africa on my first trip. Looking forward to the next trip and sharing it with my son!

Welcome aboard Lee. Sounds like you have a plan. What did the Mrs. think about it? Hunting Africa is addicting.

G'day Lee!

Enjoy your hunt with your son - and don't forget to post up pics with a report.

I can recommend 2 classic books on African hunting:
1) "Hunter" by J A Hunter (no intro necessary!), and,
2) "Uganda Safari" by Brian Hearne (very frank and funny in places, with a photo of a 3-tusked elephant).

Great to have you with us!
